Spinach Salad with hot bacon dressing (keto)

Shortly after I started eating keto, I threw together this salad out of what I had available. And then proceeded to eat it every day for a month. There's something addictive about it...the tangy meets sweet meets creamy meets bacon...that just makes for a satisfying meal. And it takes like 5 minutes to make as an added bonus...I also personally think the dressing would be pretty darn good over chicken or fish. I never actually measure my spices - just play dump. PS If you don't have kitchen shears or scissors for chopping bacon, trust me, you want them! This is one serving (ie. meal size) but could easily feed 2 as a side.

(Keto) Spinach Salad with hot bacon dressing

2 cups (2 big handfuls) fresh spinach
1/2 an avocado, diced
1 strawberry, diced

Hot bacon dressing:
2 slices bacon
1 T avocado oil
pinch red pepper flakes
1 tsp oregano
1/2 tsp garlic powder
1/4-1/2 tsp pink salt
half a lemon

Cut bacon up (use shears) and fry. While frying prepare salad greens, avocado and strawberry. Once fried, add remaining ingredients and immediately pour over salad.


  1. The picture is mouth watering. I have tried many salads recently. Time to try this one too. Looks interesting. Nice blog!

  2. Do u use the grease from the bacon too? And of so does the spinach wilt? Does the dressing taste like cold grease?

    1. Yes, you utilize the hot grease. The spinach wilts minimally. And absolutely not! The acidity of the lemon offsets any "greasy" - it's just like any vinegar and oil dressing.

  3. Can you use olive oil instead of avocado oil?

  4. I love bacon and I like spinach too! I will try this recipe out later.
